Grant Permissions

In Space, individual permissions cannot be granted directly to a user. To provide a user with specific permissions, you grant that user a Role which contains those permissions.

Global access

System Admin is the default Role that contains a set of global permissions. The global permissions are valid across the entire organization.

You grant these permissions to users on the Roles page, by adding a user to the System Admin Role. You can add teams as well.

To grant a user or team the System Admin Role:

  1. On the navigation bar, click administration.png Administration and choose Roles.

  2. On the left pane, choose System Admin. On the right pane, choose the Members tab.

    Existing System Admins will be listed here.

  3. Add a user or team by entering their name into the text field or choosing them from the drop-down list.

You can create a custom role with your own selection of global permissions and grant it (add users to it) in a similar manner.

Access to a project

Access to each project is managed independently by the project's administrator, which is initially a user that created the project. The project administrator can grant access to other users by giving them the Project Member and Project Admin roles for that project. See Manage Access to a Project for instructions.

System Admin cannot administer a project unless he or she is the one who created it or was granted the Project Admin role by a current project administrator.

However, System Admin can modify templates for the predefined project-specific Roles (permission sets) by adding or removing permissions from them. The role templates can be then used by Project Admins as predefined Roles to assign those Roles to their project participants. A Project Admin can override the template configuration in his or her project by editing predefined Roles or creating new Roles .
